Q) Message for readers
I know that today’s world is of OTT platforms and they show content for which youth is craving but trust me readers stories are still the source of their content. Every story/novel in world is somewhere related to real life incidents of people. Instead of going for imaginations shown in OTT go for reading as there you will be seeing the world from other’s eye.
